One tank division in Kaliningrad will be able to compete with the armored forces of the FRG


In 2021, the Russian Ministry of Defense plans to form a new tank division in Kaliningrad, which, in terms of combat potential and number, will be able to compete with the armored forces of some European countries - in particular, Germany. The division is called upon to protect the Russian exclave from outside encroachments, writes the Chinese newspaper Sina.


Kaliningrad is essential for defending Russia's western frontiers, where a sufficient number of troops can be deployed with the potential to influence the course of hostilities in Europe. The new division may include one tank and three motorized rifle regiments, but in total 10 motorized rifle battalions and 6 tank battalions, including an engineer and artillery unit, will join it. The Russian army also plans to equip the division with new tanks, including the T-72B3M.

There are almost 200 tanks in six tank battalions. All German troops now lack 400 tanks, Poland in total has just over 600 tanks

- say Chinese analysts.

Meanwhile, the Russian army is strong not only in a single region, but in general. Thus, according to the calculations of the British military expert Nicholas Drummond, Russia is by far the first in the world in terms of the number of tanks (12950). The second place by this indicator is taken by the USA (6333), "bronze" went to China (5800). The German Army has 236 tanks.

The Russian army surpasses competitors not only in the number of tank equipment, but also in its quality. Military expert William Flannigan believes that the Russian T-14 Armata tank is largely superior to the US and British M1A2 Abrams and Challenger 2 tanks, respectively.

    separately, there is no country in Europe that could compete with Russia.
    A European country (any) does not have the opportunity (and money) to renew its Air Force fleet for 500 aircraft in 10 years. At the same time, update the air defense, ground forces and nuclear weapons - update the railway and the fleet (including underwater)

    It may and does surpass it, but only Abrash and his cousin are available, but Armata is not yet available and it is unclear when there will be at least one company, because this "smartphone" will need:

      there is armata. she shoots. she's on trial. And not a single copy (In 2015, a pre-production batch of 20 tanks was made). Europe and America have no analogue in hardware, even in 1 copy.

      and Abrams and Challengers - they are also there - as in our army there are T-80, T72 of the latest modifications.

      PS and Abrams also has a Negro. but we don't have

      The Tula Central Design Bureau for Apparatus Engineering has developed simulators for training the crews of the Armata tank, BMP Kurganets and BTR Boomerang - this is 16 years.

        It seems that information has passed that the new light tank will have an automatic loader. Refuse blacks for technical reasons.

          As recent examples of hostilities show, MBT tanks are no longer the main combat unit that creates an advantage. now the alignment is more complicated, in these layouts the RF Armed Forces are not at the head, there are many questions and doubts about ". One tank division in Kaliningrad will be able to compete with the armored forces of the FRG" ...

            We still have a lot of interesting things in Kaliningrad. The new division in Kaliningrad will obviously act on the defensive.

        ... there is armata. she shoots. she's on trial.

        Of course, there are no analogues in terms of the number of Armats per kilometer of the front or the border to be covered, at the border of each neighboring state, put one at a time and that's it, all the adversaries hid in basements.

        Europe and America have no analogue in hardware, even in 1 copy.

        Everyone has analogs, only they are older. This machine is not fundamentally new, it has a hull, two goslings and a turret. No propeller, no air cushion, no satellites or whatever. And attachments or accompanying the fact that there is something to find.

        The Tula Central Design Bureau for Apparatus Engineering has developed simulators for training tank crews.

        Yes, just like that from behind a computer toy and into battle. We are kind of no stranger. wassat How many crews per "day" can be trained on such a simulator? How many will leave the lines? Then there should be some other practical coordination and training in the field. Armata is not the kind of machine that will jump off the conveyor like hot cakes. The more complicated the technique, the longer it takes to build and master, or in this case, too, will you write down the file for the crews to "catch up" the product in the spare parts and accessories?

        .... a tank division in Kaliningrad will be able to compete ...

        The Soviet Army also had a lot to compete with, and what? Neither outside nor inside the country, no one even lifted a finger, the army "new Russians" first of all "de-democratized", once or twice.

    Does the FRG need it? After all, knowing how the Americans love to bang on tanks from everything flying, then each tank must be given a S-300/400/500! Expensive ...
    Ahhh, I forgot about the Russian electronic warfare - the most electronic warfare in the world!
